I got home about three a.m.,
Working my fingers to the bone.
My woman’s waiting up for me,
Gonna put me through the third degree.
"where you been? who you seen? "
Is all she wants to know.
I can’t lie to save my life
’cause I got nothin’ to hide.

Let me tell you what’s been on my mind.
You been in the city again.
I ain’t lyin’, baby, I saw you on your high horse,
Walkin’ along like you didn’t belong
To any self-respecting man.
Is that the way you’re gonna repay
All the love that I’ve given to you?

It’s a wind-up, wind-up,
Wind up accusin’ me. (repeat)
Wind me up.

Maybe we should start all over again -
That’s the best advice.
Meet me halfway, and I’ll be there -
I been there so long, and now I’m coming home for rest.
I’m ok, how about you?
Everything I said, baby, was true.
We only got ourselves to blame -
Makin’ our bed is just a part of the game.

It’s a wind-up, wind-up,
Wind up accusin’ me.
Baby, it’s a wind-up, wind-up,
Wind-up for you and me. (repeat)
You want me, you want me to be.

You gotta stop what you do.
Wind-up, wind-up,
I don’t need no more of your lies.
Wind-up, wind-up.
I gotta stop now.
Wind-up, wind-up.
